About
Modesty has no place at this highly respectable sauna, where you get down to the altogether in mixed company. Sauna Deco is a small spa in a unique place and with a unique interior. A place for people that know how to appreciate a sauna bath. Don't expect swimming pools or a Jacuzzi but know it has everything for a couple of hours of relaxing.

The area
Address
Neighborhood: Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.

    Great Experience like stepping back 40 years in time.
    What an amazing Spa. Just like stepping back 40 years. The staff are so helpful and informative. The Infrared Sauna is different but so enjoyable. Both conventional Saunas and the Steam Room are also excellent. Finally the cold plunge pool is so refreshing. Good value for money and would use it every week if I lived in Amsterdam.

    Enjoy it’s a great place to have a break. Sauna Deco is a marvellous place to relax, around 30 Euros entrance, there’s infra red heat rooms (two), a large pool, mixed locker room, massage rooms, relaxation areas outside with comfortable loungers, nice staff, steam rooms, Saunas plenty of showers and an upstairs rest area, towels a plenty but leave your swimming costume at home. Value for money at the Spa 10/10 and best of all is the authentic decor. Remember everyone is wearing their birthday suit.

    Worth the visit if you like architecture or spas-I like both
    A little history. In 1925 Paris hosted the Exhibition Internationale des Arts Decortif et Industriales Moderne from which the term Art Deco was eventually coined. The decor of this show was the exhibit of the department store Bonne Marche and after the exhibition it was incorporated into the actual store. When the store redecorated, they sold the interiors and they were incorporated into this spa. I found the interiors to be magnificent but the staff cold, impatient and impersonal.

    Amazing, cant wait to come back
    Been at Deco mid February 2024 all alone while on a business trip, without my bf. One of the best experiences I've ever had in my life, actually this was my first time in a nude spa. Staff really helpful and polite, everything clean in general and a good mix of people. My only problem is that I rent bathrobe, and it was mixed twice, somebody got mine and left his, so I had to deal with this, but its not an issue of the management. NB everybody is naked, at all places, both men and women, various age, from 20 to 60. From changing room to saunas and showers, all rooms are mixed nude. Sounds scary but it only takes a minute or two to get used to it. If you are searching for something more, please do not bother coming. You will be escorted out in a minute. Just the perfect place for relaxation, cant wait to come back.

    A relaxing afternoon
    The building is furnished with art deco items brought from Paris about 75 years ago, creating a gorgeous and luxurious atmosphere. There are two saunas, a steam room, infra-red sauna, and a cold plunge pool. All were excellent. If possible, schedule a massage - if you were walking as much as we were, it will feel like heaven. We wished they had a hot tub to complete the experience. Also, soap is provided in a dispenser but bring your own shampoo and lotion. Every person has a locker and there is a hairdryer. Refreshments are available onsite for a reasonable cost (the lemon ginger tea is awesome as is the carrot cake).

Heard of this place and decided I had to give it a go. The surroundings are truly lush, wonderful old panelling.
So I’m from the UK and we kind of have a problem sometimes with stripping off. Europe though has the right idea. Nobody… absolutely nobody cares you’re sat there in the nude and you’re all there to soak up the atmosphere and hot relaxation anyway so who cares. Just chill and embrace that.
Either bring a towel or hire one for a reasonable cost. Yes you can just rock up. Obviously you wear a towel in between hot rooms and you sit on it in the sauna itself. In the steam room you leave it outside, again for obvious reasons.
The plunge pool is wonderfully refreshing, as are the foot baths but a whirlpool hot bath is perhaps sadly missing. Then again after a friend who managed a gym told me how they found how foul the water was in those things, it’s perhaps a good thing it’s missing.

You’ll leave truly chilled and refreshed.

I had a long layover in Amsterdam, so I decided to book a massage and sauna session. I had a wonderful massage from David, that helped relieve the aches from several days of walking. After that, I alternated between the various sauna rooms and the steam room. I even sat outside in the cool air with a light rain falling, perfect for cooling down after a hot sauna. My only disappointment was that the cold pool was closed due to Covid restrictions. I will definitely try to go back next time I am in Amsterdam (and I might even schedule another long layover).

Some people might be a bit shy about going to a co-ed nude sauna. My advice is to just go for it. Everybody seemed pretty relaxed about being naked together in the saunas and showers--and after a few minutes, you don't even really notice it.

LOVE this place. An Art Deco gem in the heart of Amsterdam. It is literally the best way to spend €27.50 in this city. Hours of relaxation in a unique setting that is inexpensive enough to enjoy regularly.

On my trip to Amsterdam I discovered Sauna Deco.
What a lovely place!
And I think I had the best massage ever from Roos.
She was passionate about her craft and highly skilled. This all came with a natural tranquility where you feel comfortable, at ease and in the right place. The results speak for themselves.
I will definitely come back!

A very nice old style place. No clothes, no swimsuits, just a smile. Fellow guests were pleasant and proper. Don't come if you're not comfortable with social nudity. Do come for a totally relaxing experience.

I'm in Amsterdam fairly frequently and the Sauna Deco is always on my list of places I must go. First things first, Sauna Deco isn't for outright prudes, but almost anyone can feel comfortable here since you will see a wide variety of coverings. Some people are in towels, some in robes, some just plain naked, the one thing I've never seen worn is swim suits or shorts. Frankly, being a midwestern American I didn't quite know how I would react the first time but quickly found the atmosphere to be incredibly relaxing and that everyone just did their own thing. Some people have said "how can you do this in front of strangers", my response is "they're strangers who I'll probably never see again, who cares!" I guess I must be a European at heart.

When I've been there it has generally been an even mix of genders, and also a mix of locals, tourists who know the ropes, and first timers. You won't be treated like tourist, indeed no one will pay you any attention at all.

The procedure is simple - walk in the door and go to the desk where they will give you a numbered locker key. As everywhere in Amsterdam, the entire conversation will be in English. If you want a towel or robe ask for one. There are cubbyholes beyond the desk for your reading materials, etc., but don't step accross that line until you've taken off your shoes or you'll get firmly talked to! By this time you will have already noticed that the patrons of Deco aren't exactly modest. Go to the locker room and get ready. If there are people in there and you're shy, just keep your back to the locker - no one will pay you any attention in any case. Don your towel or robe and return the key to the desk. From this point you have many options, but it is generally expected that you will shower first, in the room that's just to the left of the checkin desk. The steam room is a good place to begin since it is, well, dark and steamy. Just leave your towel outside the door and hop in. The procedure is to squeegy off the bench before sitting down. In the main area there are many places to sit and relax, get a cup of coffee or a sandwich, places to stretch out and take a nap, places to read a good book, etc. The whole experience can easily consume three or four hours, with most people alternating between sauna, steam room, plunge pool (cold!), showers, and just sitting around relaxing. There are even a couple of places to relax in outside courtyards (one of which seems to overlook an office building's conference room. Now there's something you'd NEVER see in the states!) I leave feeling like a new person. The massages are also great, but usually can't be booked on the spot. I generally stop in on my first day in town and book a massage for later in the week. These are also not for the faint of heart since you pretty much get your massage in front of the world.

Anything you purchase along the way - food, etc. - will be charged to your locker so there is no need to worry about money. When you're finished just stop by the desk to get your key, get dressed, and then return the key to the desk where they'll tell you what you owe.

All this is done in the midst of some of the most amazing Deco architecture I've ever seen. Truly decadent. Try it and you'll be hooked for life.
